We have a new baby in the family and that got me to thinking about making him his baby food when he is ready for it. It just seems like the practical and healthy thing to do. I got a Cusinart Bottle Warmer and Baby Food Maker last week to review (disclosure at end of post) and I want to tell you I am impressed with this baby food maker. I made both carrots and sweet potatoes in it and it was so easy!
To do the carrots all you need to do is peel them and cut them into 1 inch pieces and add the recommended amount of water to the chamber where you would warm the bottles at. Then set it to steam and when they are cooked it turns itself off. Then you just pulse the carrots to the desired consistency for whatever stage your baby is at.
It took about 15 minutes before the machine shut itself off and the carrots were perfect! So after the carrots I decided to do some sweet potatoes. They were the perfect consistency when they were done too. I could of easily kept going but Cannon isn’t ready for real food yet so I will have to wait to practice some more. He is going to love fruit made in this.
When making your own baby food a few things to keep in mind are:
1. Wash your fruits and vegetables really well before adding them to the baby food maker.
2. You can freeze the vegetables in ice cube trays and take out the cubes as needed. Microwave for 30 seconds before using.
3. The work bowl can hold 4 cups of vegetables.
4. Everything that comes in contact with the food is BPA free!
Good Luck! This giveaway is open to the US only and you must be over 18 years of age.
